Great book, good story, wonderful writing, and I believe this was my second of his books. Well worth the read--I cannot imagine Robotham writing something sub par; Enjoy, those of you who have yet to discover him!

I didn't like this book at all and found it quite disturbing in parts. I have liked the other books in the series but not this one.

This is a good book. Bit of a surprise ending, at least for me. I recommend to those who like suspense.

Although in the book there are a large number of cliches, belonging to this genre of literature, is offset by the intelligent and interesting narrative, the proper amount of crime scenes, psychoanalysis, very insightful comments and is really thrilling.
The psychologist in this book suffers from Parkinson. I am tired that too often writers are using main characters: detective, policemen, psychiatrist etc., who eventually at the end of the book will find a guilty, inevitably he/she suffers from Parkinson, or other incurable disease.

Michael Robotham and his Joe O'Loughlin character are now part of my" favourite mystery series" list. I like all the books featuring Joe, a brainy clinical psychologist suffering from Parkinson's disease and I like his side kick Vincent Ruiz. I just don't care for the books that feature Ruiz wihout Joe. The books are very suspenseful and Joe doesn't always get it right which can add to the twists and turns. Robotham is an Australian writer but these books are set in England.

I skipped the previous two books because the subject seemed a little off-putting. Now I may go back and read them. This was a great mystery--the plotting, character development, forensic details were A-one. Howerever, the end was not 100% satisfing; the perpetrator, although introduced as a character early on, seemed pulled out of a hat in the final scenes.

What an amazing book. It's a story of two teenagers who get abducted and are held captive. I thought it was well written and I found it hard to put down. It was a hard but wonderful read

First book by Robotham I've read. I thought it was good, smart and well written. My reservations concerned the way the author used the girl's diary to generate suspense... I won't enter a spoiler here but I thought this crossed some kind of line.

Robotham’s seventh psychological thriller featuring Parkinson’s disease afflicted psychologist Joe O’Loughlin and retired cop Vincent Ruiz will grab readers from the first page. The Oxford police approach Joe for help in profiling a suspect accused of killing a married couple at their farmhouse during a blizzard. Interwoven with Joe’s investigation are diary entries by 18 year old Piper Hadley who was kidnapped three years earlier – along with her best friend Tash McBain – and is still being held. When no clues turned up following their disappearance, it was assumed they ran away. When links arise between the farmhouse murders and the unsolved kidnapping, Joe and Vincent work to reopen the young girls’ case and find them before it’s too late. Great storytelling and a compelling thriller. Those who enjoy the books of Stephen White’s Dr. Alan Gregory series and Val McDermid’s Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series would probably enjoy this book.

“Beware of data. On July 24, 2000, the Concord was the safest aircraft in the world. A day latter, according to the statistics, it was the least safe airline in the world.”
